What to Expect

The highlight of a trip to Drumheller is of course the Royal Tyrrell Museum and its’ world-class dinosaur and fossil exhibits. But there is also an excellent selection of things to see and do on scenic drives around Drumheller.

Follow the audio directions to do the Dinosaur Trail route which includes the museum as well as Horsethief Canyon, the Orkney Viewpoint, the World’s Biggest Little Church and even a free car ferry ride across the Red Deer River.

Another route is the Hoodoo Trail, named for the striking hoodoo rock formations south of the town. Other highlights include the Rosedale Suspension Bridge, the almost ghost town of Wayne, the Atlas Coal Mine and more. Both loops can be completed easily in a day and are an excellent bonus to visiting the museum.

Listen to interesting dinosaur commentary on the 1 hour connection as you approach Drumheller from Highway 2. Different stories play as you return back to Highway 2 on Route 9/72 or to Calgary Airport through the pretty town of Rosedale.

FAQ

Google Maps wants to navigate me a different way to Drumheller, will I hear the tour?

Roads to Drumheller from the Calgary area are shaped like a grid.  Navigation apps might try to route you a zigzagging way. All routes take about the same time. 

To hear the tour, follow the instructions to drive north on Hwy 2 until you reach Exit 295. The tour route follows Hwy 9/72 through the town of Beiseker. If you go another way, the commentary will not play.

If you arrive in Drumheller from the east, you can join the tour route in town.

How much time should I allow for the Dinosaur Museum?

The collection at Royal Tyrrell is excellent.  It is easy to fill a few hours, and even more if anyone in your group is a dinosaur enthusiastic
